Trial for Madisonville man accused of sexual abuse underway

Posted: Updated:
HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

The jury trial for 52-year-old Cecil Salyers is underway in Madisonville.  

He's charged with six counts of first degree sexual abuse and several other charges.

With seemingly no remorse on his face, Salyers sat and listened on Monday as the prosecution numbed the jury with chilling opening statements of what happened over three years ago.

A jury of eight males and four females will decide the fate of Cecil Salyers, who is charged with several sexual related crimes during the summer of 2010.  

Officials with the prosecution say they will be calling seven witnesses and/or victims to the stand, who at the time of the alleged crimes, were between 9 and 15 years old.

On Tuesday, we will hear from those witnesses and victims as they take the stand.
